ABOUT ALTITUDE TRAINING
At TCR, we love using science to help you achieve your goals. Canada’s first dedicated Altitude Lab is our way of helping you achieve them. The “human body is a wonderful organism that continually adapts to a stimulus.” Our stimulus is to use short episodes of altitude exposure to produce a positive change in your body. You will experience an improvement in your metabolism, fitness and body composition in a relatively short period of time.
Are you looking to drop a few extra pounds but have hit a plateau? When your exercise is no longer delivering results then Altitude Training is the perfect option to get your metabolism moving again. There are two points to consider on why to try Altitude training for weight loss:
Increase Caloric Expenditure and improvement in Fat Utilization.
Performance & Acclimatization
You may simply just want to get ready for a high altitude trip to Kilimanjaro or a hike in the mountains. Not everyone has the opportunity to travel to these destinations, which is where our Altitude Lab can help with the preparation.
If setting a personal best is in order, do what all high performance athletes do, go to Altitude. On average, cyclists gain 10-20W of power over 6 sessions and runner’s take 5% of their PB’s. You will see an improvement in power and speed but also breathing rate and recovery. Use science to get ready!

WHAT CLIENT'S SAY
Adrian – Asthma & Altitude
I have been training in TCR’s Altitude Lab for the past three months. I am passionate about endurance sports. But in the past, my asthma meant I suffered no matter how much I trained. Now that I’m regularly running in the Altitude Lab, I am no longer experiencing burning and tightness in my chest. My asthma doesn’t limit my performance anymore, allowing me to achieve personal bests that I never thought possible.
Kilimanjaro – Hung H
Thank you for helping me conquer Kilimanjaro! The altitude training worked like magic as I consistently registered the highest O2 saturation level within my group the entire week that we were hiking. I will definitely be incorporating altitude training in all my future training programs and I would highly recommend the high altitude training for anyone who is considering a high altitude hike
Just wanted to thank you again. I didn’t want my wife’s first impression of her new bike to be negative and thanks to you today we won’t have to worry about that tomorrow. The jersey was like iceing on the cake.
I thought you should know that I really think the altitude chamber worked for me. I came in first place in my age group and won a gold medal! I’m a believer! Thanks for your encouragement and great coaching!
I came back from Moab and I just wanted to let you know you are a genius!!! I followed your advise and things worked way better than expected.
I did a 2x1k last night and it went really well so I’m feeling confident heading into the weekend. I can’t believe summer is almost here! This winter has been phenomenal, I am so glad I discovered TCR.
Pat K. / Weekend Warrior
I tipped the scales at 161.2 lbs today, down from 195 lbs in January. Your weight loss plan continues to astound me. Thanks
Carli T / Runner
Cory was great as usual and gave me just enough to work on that I’m not overwhelmed. Definitely feel like changing 35+ years of the same running technique is not impossible. Thanks!
Russ G. / Cyclist
Thanks, the training really seems to be working. This is the best coaching I’ve ever gotten as we are really working well together.
Adrian C / Tri-Athlete
This altitude room this is for real…. Love the benefits from the training we have done at higher altitude. I’ll be sure to tell everyone I know they need to try this out. Thanks
